Today would have been the 13th day until Opening Day countdown, but with the season temporarily suspended it looks like I need to find other things to blog about.
It's also Friday the 13th.
When I think of the saying Friday the 13th I immediately think about Jason Voorhees, the slasher from Crystal Lake.
So with today being Friday the 13th, I thought I could show 13 various DIE CUT cards. It seems fitting to discuss on such a day.
I have a lot more rare parallels like Gold Prizm and relic die cuts, but if anyone has ever attempted to put a die cut card into a penny sleeve or top loader, you know they are difficult to get the right angle without dinging one of the many potential "corners".
So with that being said here are some of my lower end die cuts.
2014 Elite Aspirations Inspirations
The design for this card looks like it could be a logo for a intergalactic space police force.
2014 Stadium Club Triumvirate
2015 Stadium Club Triumvirate
2015 Prizm Diamond Marshal insert
2015 Topps Chrome
2014 Bowman Platinum Cutting Edge Stars
This Bowman Platinum card would look amazing with an autograph on it.
2014 Bowman Platinum 5 Tool
This Bowman Platinum diecut insert gives me the impression of just cut out anything that would have the black border be part of a design. There are so many edges on this card.
2013 Bowman Platinum Cutting Edge Stars
Another Bowman Platinum insert.
2015 Allen & Ginter National
As a precursor To Ginter X Topps produced some die cut cards that were distributed at the National to get fans excited about the 10th Anniversary of the product.
2012 Topps Chrome Dynamic Die Cuts
2013 Bowman Chrome Fit The Bill
2012 Faces of Franchise
This is my favorite "oddball" card I have of Andrew McCutchen. The card was designed to be part of the autograph subject line, but Topps never put the stickers on the cards or foil stamped it. It is believed that only 15 were produced and with no major markings besides the tiny print certified autograph issue it is very likely that the other 9 are somewhere in a quarter bin.
